    Scary Thought

    A unit of Chosen Berzerkers all Aspiring Champs with war gear and Deamonic gifts! I don't know if this will work but if it does this could be really nasty!(and expensive!)

    As was said in the past however-many threads about this very topic... it looks "good" on paper, but it's a bad idea.

    They die just as easily as the rest of your army, and cost way too many points.

    Meaning, a huge chunk of your army devoted to that one unit, who will draw a lot of fire.

    And, since it will draw a lot of fire, it will most likely have a 95% chance of... well, dying. Quickly.

    Maybe in mega battles or something.. not in a standard game.

    You could do the same thing with a unit of chosen aspiring champions, giving them infiltrate, daemonic speed, daemonic strength, furious charge, and a power weapon. This allows for that much loved first turn charge (at a 5 init, and 6 strength). Still, like Lost Nemisis said, they are just as fragile as normal marines. Of course, if you end up going first, then you can really lay into your opponent. On the flip side, going second would probably guarantee a loss for you.

    Every new person to Chaos one day realized that they can make an entire unit out of Champions and thinks it is suddenly a great idea. It takes a while before they figure out that it is not so much of a good idea to throw away points like that and they're better off investing points elsewhere. Then one day they learn that your basic troops choices are the most potent forces in your list and are what wins you games.

    That was the short summary of the transformation from newbie to veteran.
